Comment (by kencu):

 It looks like coreutils uses GNULIB fallbacks very nicely, instead of
 LegacySupport fallbacks, if LegacySupport is not used.

 Other than that, I can't see too much difference.

 Did you spot there anything that you would see as a new functionality in
 coreutils that LegacySupport would provide that the existing GNULIB
 fallback does not provide? Otherwise, not much reason to use LegacySupport
 over GNULIB, I think.
